Conclude Federation Cup competition on given dates or risk hefty penalty, NFF warns


The Nigeria Football Federation has warned Football Associations in the 36 States of the Federation and the FCT to play their Federation Cup final matches on either 30th March or 31st March as instructed by the NFF, or risk a penalty of N1million.

Ruth David, NFF’s Director of Competitions, said on Monday that the football-ruling body will no longer condone the disruptive attitude of some FAs who set their own timetables outside that of the NFF.

“The NFF has stated clearly in the schedule from the beginning, that the States must play their final matches either on Saturday, 30th March or Sunday, 31st March. We have also reminded the States again about this schedule, and any State that fails to abide by the dates will have itself to blame.

“Any State that fails to conclude its championship by Sunday, 31st March will be fined the sum of N1million. Any State that concludes its championship before Saturday, 30th March will be fined the same amount of money.”

This year’s Federation Cup competition in the States began on Friday, 1st March 2024.
